Whales & Sharks

Today's Creature Features are Whales & Sharks!

 

Though very biologically different, one being a mammal and the other a fish, whales and sharks share several features: both are large, ocean-dwelling, charismatic megafauna, and both have been hunted to near-extinction by humans. Whales are incredibly important for recycling nutrients within the ocean, and sharks help maintain the balance of the marine food web in their role as apex predator. However, decades of hunting have driven populations down, and they are further affected by climate change, water pollution, and bycatch. Two simple things you can do to help are avoid whale and shark meat and oil, and minimize your plastic waste to help reduce plastic pollution.
